Valuators of nonprofits get a new tool

Jeff Glassie, Eileen Johnson and Dana Lynch of Whiteford, Taylor, and Preston, in Washington, DC. have co-written a mini-treatise on intellectual property law for nonprofit institutions. 

Intellectual Property for Nonprofit Organizations and Associations covers nonprofits’ most valuable intangible assets: copyrights, trademarks, lists of members, attendees, exhibitors, etc., and aids in helping to develop strategies to protect a brand internationally. (Here’s a sample read from the chapter on copyrights.) The book is available on the American Society of Association Executives (ASAE) website.)

Valuators with nonprofit clients can get a real sense of what intangibles are most valuable and how best to measure the protections organizations have in place.
